Strategies to Ensure an Accessible Distributed Learning Course: Course Accessibility Documents for Workshop https://sites.google.com/site/courseaccessibility/course-accessibility-documents

Iím writing to share some links of possible interest as the group considers options for the selection of courses, schedule, etc., for the APLU proposal:

∑ The National Center for Academic Transformation (NCAT) has sponsored several large grant programs for ìredesignî of large undergraduate courses using online technologies. An overview of these projects is at http://www.thencat.org/howtodoit.htm and underlying pedagogical principles are at http://www.thencat.org/PlanRes/R2R_PrinCR.htm

∑ NCAT has posted over 150 case studies of university courses which were redesigned to integrate online technologies (including examples from STEM, social science, and humanities) http://www.thencat.org/PCR/Proj_Discipline_all.html

∑ They have also posted how-to resources for institutions interested in this type of approach http://www.thencat.org/howtodoit.htm
